An established, natural bush block. Serene with nature - highlighted by kangaroos, kookaburras, parrots and echidnas. Set within State forest, the block is reserved for nature - with plenty of firewood and protected by native trees from prevailing winds. Gold prospecting is an avid local activity and welcomed by Hipcampers

10 minutes down the road you'll find the quaint village of Talbot. The town retains a number of historic buildings from its prosperous gold mining days. Some of the old shops which line this street are now home to speciality businesses, including a clothing boutique, bookshop and homewares store. The restored London House building in Scandinavian Crescent operates as a cafe and visitor information centre and is surrounded by an attractive community garden. At the corner of Scandinavian Crescent and Fyfe Street is the Talbot Pioneers Memorial Playground with BBQ and picnic shelters. A monthly farmers  market operates in Scandinavian Crescent and the surrounding streets every 3rd Sunday.

2 hours from Melbourne, 1 hours from Ballarat.

Lovely little property with great areas for walking or bike riding. We took our own tent but weather was dismal so Ian allowed us to use his cabin at no extra charge. It’s a lovely little spot, and I would go again. Thank you Ian for being such a great host

Great location and a great block. Ian was superb with his instructions and the site was easy to find and very accessible. The welcome Easter chocolates were a nice touch!

Ian was a most helpful host - the property was a little tricky to find due to its remoteness being in the middle of a national park. It suited our needs for the weekend being able to take the dogs and have a fire. We wanted privacy as it was our first time towing and setting up our van.
The cake he left us was a lovely touch.
